Typically used to provide strength after a root canal treatment or to cover a heavily filled, decayed or broken tooth, crowns are custom-made prosthetic fittings that are cemented onto your existing tooth.
Traditional metal-based crowns have long been used to strengthen or rebuild teeth – but nowadays porcelain and pressed ceramic crowns provide a completely metal-free and aesthetically-pleasing option. Engineered in a lab using your dental impressions, they will match the exact colour, texture and translucency of your natural teeth.
The latest generation of ceramic crowns are excellent in terms of strength and function – especially at the front of the mouth, where aesthetics are of paramount importance. Unlike the crowns of yesteryear, the ceramic crowns provided at Binley Woods Dentistry have no metal lining, so you won’t notice any dark lines or shadowing at the gum line. Because there is no metal under our ceramic crowns, they are more lifelike and reflect more light – making them appear even more natural. They’re bio-compatible too, so there is no risk of allergy to the metal alloys found in traditional crowns.
